Made a small bowl of pasta with a homemade sauce of roasted tomato and garlic and watched this weeks metaphysics lecture. I have the seminar later today where I have some pointers to bring up. Also I had a department rep meeting with a member of the SU in order to get more clued up on my role and discuss things before the SSC meeting. It was mornings when I took these photos but the lighting was still awful because it’s so dull outside.

To do list

- go over department rep documents & make notes

- catch up on readings for courses

- continue planning & research for dissertation

How about Vaporwave Academia?

soft vaporwave music playing on the background, reading Plato and getting lost in the “idealistic world”, notebooks filled with illegible equations that probably explain the mysteries of cosmos, 8 mugs if instant coffee all over the bedroom, electronic cigarettes, academic stylistic preferences with obscure colour schemes, labs, 5 am researches about the temperature of stars and their types, existential crisis at an empty mall on Saturday night, cathedrals illuminated with neon lights.

Hogwarts Houses x Academia

Gryffindor Academia - holding hands, fire crackling, brushing your hands through fur, untying your hair, having dirty feet, long road trips, volunteering in class, recognising a song playing in public, cinnamon, cigarette smoke, vanilla, beer, pleated skirts, sunny days, late nights, thinking out loud, bad choices, winning an argument

Ravenclaw Academia - the smell of new books, swear jars, sweaters, polaroid pictures, late afternoons, greenhouses, ambition, messy buns, slam poetry, petrichor, black tea, old ink, old paper, musty attics, lavender, coffee, snickerdoodles, smoke after blown out candles, a perfectly crafted thesis, looking good in business attire, correcting people’s grammar

Slytherin Academia - curly hair, chapped lips, graveyards, ripped jeans, bruised knees, cigarettes, knee high socks, dark chocolate, picking grass, having perfect winged eyeliner, cursive handwriting, walks in the forest, pale skin, sweater paws, vodka, pine trees, mint, looking killer in formal wear, horror movies, perfectly crafted insults and sarcasm level off the charts

Hufflepuff Academia - soft hoodies, sitting next to the new kid, long hugs, knowing the names of everyone in your class, sunrises, loud laughter, doodling, clumsy, dirty sneakers, oversized sweaters, extra creamy hot chocolate, honey, lemon, laughing until you can’t breathe, work now play later, false innocense, irony, dad jokes

cat and mouse:

my affection is no secret.

i vie for your attention,

trying to please you.

but you like it.

there’s a gleam in your eye when we lock eyes;

you look at me differently than the others.

you smile at me wider than the others.

you worry about me, even if you say you don’t.

you tense up under my touch.

and that’s why i do it.

this sadistic game of cat and mouse

because i can see

you do it, too.

sometimes playing cat, sometimes mouse.

but eventually,

the cat will catch the mouse,

or it will accept defeat.

which one will it be?

we’ll just have to wait and see.

November 24, 2020 (5/100)

Sorry I can’t have a photo today! I’m writing this on my laptop so I can’t exactly take photos. 

Things I did today

  • Went to all of my classes
  • Scheduled a book pick up for all the library books I have on hold
  • Started making a presentation for a project
  • Ignored Khan Academy…
  • Wrote down some info for a fanfic draft

I currently have a low-grade fever, probably caused by my sleep deprivation and stress levels so I’m going to take it easy during Thanksgiving break which is why you may not see that many posts for the next 5 days.

I hope you guys have a lovely rest of the week!

𝑀𝑦 𝑙𝑖𝑓𝑒 𝑎𝑠 𝑎 𝑑𝑎𝑟𝑘 𝑎𝑐𝑎𝑑𝑒𝑚𝑖𝑐 𝑖𝑛 𝑎 𝑏𝑟𝑖𝑡𝑖𝑠ℎ 𝑝𝑟𝑖𝑣𝑎𝑡𝑒 𝑠𝑐ℎ𝑜𝑜𝑙:

• Being in awe of the history and beauty of the buildings as I walk around

• signing up to give presentations in my history society even though I have a copious amount of work

• feeling pretentious all the time and liking it

• being happy in the comfort of the cozy and plentiful library

• the excitement of finding a likeminded soul to share ideas with

• attending the lectures that are put on by previous students who are now successful

• looking forward to every English, Religious studies and history lesson but detesting physics and chemistry with a burning passion

• waiting until 6th form to wear “business casual” outerwear but planning to dress exclusively in dark academia clothes

• Discussing books and philosophical ideas with my best friend

• having an unhealthy attachment to my history and English teacher

• Feeling that even though I’m in a very high ranked school, the immaturity of most of my peers is extreme

• the pure superiority complex that I get when I do well as there’s a huge amount of academically intelligent students

• loving the beautiful traditions

• actually really enjoying going to school

It’s my school’s 175 year old birthday today (24th november) so here’s an appreciation post! My school below :)
